In accordance with RSA 79:10, Timber Tax, an “Intent to Cut” application must be completed and submitted to the City of Nashua Assessor’s Office before any timber can be cut from any property. The application can be completed by the logger but must be signed by the owner. The owner is the person required to pay the timber tax.
There are exceptions: up to 10,000 board feet of logs or 20 cords of wood can be cut if the logs or cords of wood will be for personal use. See the State of NH Timber Tax Information Web Page for further information, requirements as well as the fillable Notice of Intent to Cut Wood or Timber - Form PA-7.
Excavation Activity & Excavation Tax
Excavations are exempt from taxation as real property but are subject to the Excavation Activity Tax. For an active gravel pit operation, the property owner must file an “Intent to Excavate” form annually. An “Intent to Excavate” form must be filed also when an owner anticipates the removal of earth materials which will be sold or moved from his property to another location. Submit the form to the Assessor’s Office along with a $100 fee made payable to the State of New Hampshire. There is no fee when the excavation will be 1000 cubic yards or less. See the State of NH Gravel (Excavation) Tax Information Web Page for further information, requirements as well as the fillable Notice of Intent to Excavate - Form PA-38.
